handsoff Posted May 12, 2008 Share Posted May 12, 2008 Dame Gillian is the subject of 3 "Artist Focus" programmes on R3 this week. See... http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio3/artistfocus/ ... for outline details. There's also Reubke 's Sonata on the 94th Psalm (again DGW) on Wednesday at 10.58am Rob Cowan has just played Michael Murray's recording of JSB's Toccata in F from the Methuen Hall in the USA. I find that piece one of the most satisfying of Bach's Toccatas - lovely flowing lines, nice modulations and, of course, a good tune! Rob is decidely organ friendly; all we need to do is wean him away from Bach and on to something more adventurous. I've suggested that the Final from Vierne's 1st Symphony should have a wide appeal - preferably Jeremy Filsell's recording from St. Ouen. Speaking of that Final, I played the Cochereau disc of it yesterday and found it a tad fast. I'm sure I'm on thin ice here but it was so fast that something seemed to be lost.
